Time spent beside a river

Time spent beside a river, is never wasted time

Being super close to the river, is one of the reasons I love staying here. Walk out the door, down the small trail, and there we are. The dogs know the way, of course. 
We go to the river most everyday for some afternoon fun. Roxy and Torrey both love the river, nothing like a refreshing dip.

An old Wyoming homestead

An old Wyoming homestead

As I mentioned yesterday, we stopped and had a look at this old homestead. The people who came here to homestead back in the day, were apparently a hardy bunch. This area is gorgeous, and I would have no problem what so ever looking at the Tetons all day, every day. But to be living in a log cabin through winter, would be tough. Really tough. It’s nothing for the winters to be below zero for days on end. And snow, lots and lots of snow. Plus, the winters back then must have been much worse than they are now. 
Something brought them here though, the promise of cheap land maybe. This homestead is bigger than many we see. There are 3 buildings, and the largest, which is obviously the house, even had separate rooms. Something we rarely see. One of the buildings is a barn, and the other looked like a smaller house maybe.
